Do you have to peel potatoes for beef stew?

Potatoes added to stews, curries, casseroles, etc.: There is no hard and fast rule here and provided the potatoes are clean and the blemishes have been removed, the peel can be left on. However, in some cases, the peel must be removed to ensure a smooth texture. You might need a little trial and error here.

How long does it take to cook potatoes in a stew?

Cook potatoes and carrots:
  1. While beef braises, peel potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch-wide wedges. Slice carrots diagonally (1-inch).
  2. Add potatoes and carrots to stew (make sure they are submerged) and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until potatoes and carrots are tender, about 40 minutes.
